Sleep depravation

The worst of its kind. I probably just got about 1.5 hrs total of "sleep" last night. The last month has been a roller coaster. From happy highs to the dark falls. Not sure it's time to open extra doors to my heart, after other doors just hit me in the face.

Still invisible.

Summer Love

I want to lay down on the grass with you. Stare at the sky, day or night.
Feel the summer night breeze.
I want us to have a small table. We'll use it to cook together.
I want to sit down for dinner and see you across the tiny table.
Let's laugh together.
Let's make popsicles and plan road trips.
Let's not worry about things. Things are not important.
We can walk around the park and have a picnic.
You can hold my hand, Love, as the fireflies rise from the ground to the summer sky.
I want to lay down on the grass with you. Stare at the sky, day or night.

The child of my mother

I'm a child of the moon. My mother told me about the beautiful moon she saw the night before I was born, it was waning and bright. So bright that she thought the sun was still out. She said that's maybe why I like the moon so much, because she welcomed me home.

I'm a child of the sun. My father taught me to visualize its light and send it to those I love, make the light shine from my heart to theirs. He taught me to greet the sun as it rose and as it died down with the day.

I'm a child of the ocean. My parents took me there to heal the wounds left from a foot surgery. Black night, black sand, black saltwater down my future scars, healing them and me.

I'm a child of the moon and the sun. I'm the child of my mother. I'm the child of my father.
